Reception – Hedgehog


  • Library visit

    This week we had a lovely morning visiting the library. We enjoyed our snowy walk and we sat and listened to the stories and enjoyed reading with our friends.
    We also had an author visit our class. We learnt all about what an author is and listened to her read one of her books. 
  • Zim Zam Zoom!

    We’ve been very busy in Hedgehog class this week. We have really enjoyed our book ‘Zim, Zam, Zoom!’ We have shared lots of poems together and have learnt our special poem, ‘Lullaby for a Woolly Mammoth’ which we performed in assembly.
    We enjoyed coming to school in our pyjamas and found lots of places to share books with our friends!
  • Staying safe day

    We have had another lovely week in Hedgehog class. We learnt all about different ways to stay safe and thought about people who helped to keep us safe. We made a hand print to show the people we could trust. 
    We have also continued to enjoy our castles topic, making crowns and shields.
  • A Royal week!

    We have had a lovely week exploring our topic on castles. We have a new castle role play area and we have spent time cutting and making crowns. We have been looking at non-fiction books and learning lots about castles and all of the different people that we would find in one.

  • Counting!

    We have had another good week in Hedgehog class. We have been learning about traditional tales and have read The Three Little Pigs. We have also been practising our counting and finding the difference between two numbers. During challenge time, we continued practising our counting by playing an interactive maths game on the board.
  • Chinese New Year

    We have had lots of fun in our new home corner this week. We have been celebrating Chinese New Year. We have shared some books and looked at pictures to learn lots about the celebration. 
  • Barnaby Bear’s birthday

    This week it was Barnaby Bear’s birthday! We have been enjoying role play picnics so we set up a Teddy bear’s picnic to help Barnaby celebrate. Happy Birthday Barnaby! We have also started to learn about houses and homes, and made some 2d and 3d representations of our homes.

  • Fun in the snow!

    We had lots of fun on Monday when we woke up to a snowy day! We put our wellies on and wrapped up warm to go outside and enjoy the snow. We made snowmen and looked at our footprints in the snow. 
  • Our Nativity

    We were so proud to show off our singing, dancing and acting skills at our nativity this week. Some of us were very nervous but we all did an amazing job! 
    Thank you all for coming to watch us, we hope you enjoyed it. 
  • Keeping active

    This week we have been working hard in our gymnastics lesson and have been practising our rolling and our balances. We have also been making collages of nocturnal animals and enjoying books about owls in our book corner.
